an easter picnic is my fave

boxed lunches for easter

I’m sharing these picnic lunches with parents in mind. The parents who will spend their weekend stuffing eggs and playing Easter Bunny. The parents who will realize at one point that all they’ve eaten is sugar snuck from those eggs and they need something with a little more substance. And then they’ll be handed one of these lunches while their kids are pushing over other kids in the name of jelly beans and they’ll just avert their eyes because it will be just that delicious.

I had Molly create the menu because she’s a food genius. You’ll be all set to picnic with:

- a baguette with prosciutto, brie, and jam
- an arugala salad with sliced radishes, hardboiled egg, and sesame dressing (2 parts tahini, 1 part honey, 1 part sesame oil, 1-2 parts soy sauce)
- fresh carrots and hummus
- macaroon egg nests (simply bake with a divot in the center and then finished with melted chocolate and egg shaped candy)

Of course you’ll want to give this delectable lunch the packaging it deserves. Lucky for you, I teamed up with Avery and had Kirsten design a menu to include in the box and a label to top it with. All you have to do is print (they’re all set to fit Avery templates so you don’t even have to cut – yay for perforated edges!).

Avery is a yamf sponsor, but I would love their products even if they weren’t. If you decide to have a different menu or want to write something different on the tag, use Avery Design & Print Online (which is free) to customize your own designs.
